Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers keeps hunting for new transfer prospects
Brendan Rodgers’ desire to sign in players from his former club Swansea City is no secret. The new Liverpool manager has been attempting to lure midfielder Joe Allen ever since he moved to Anfield.
Media has revealed most of Brendan Rodgers transfer targets, but the Merseyside boss insists he has plans for the club which no one knows about. In an interview to Liverpool’s official website, Brendan Rodgers talked about his new transfer plans.
Brendan Rodgers also talked about adding more firepower to Liverpool’s lack lustrous offense. The Northern Irishman took over the reins of the club from Kenny Dalglish just a few weeks ago, but his transfer policy is entirely the opposite of the legendary Scotsman.
Kenny Dalglish went hunting for high profile players during the transfer window. So far Brendan Rodgers has failed to attract top notch players to Liverpool. His best attempts at bringing in talented players have been negotiations with Joe Allen and Fulham forward Clint Dempsey.
Goal.com reports Clint Dempsey is pressurizing Fulham into agreeing to a transfer move for him. Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers continues to scour the market for forwards with belief that the most players have been over-priced.
“There's a lot of great work going on, obviously with the board and Ian Ayre in particular doing a lot of work behind the scenes,” Brendan Rodgers said. “I've got regular contact going with our American owners and, in particular, Mike Gordon from Fenway Sports Group.
“Obviously when it's a club like Liverpool prices are always increased and so on, but I always felt it was important by the beginning of the season we could have the squad we want - and certainly by the end of the transfer window I would hope that will be the case.
“There is lots of speculation. I've seen hundreds of names linked with Liverpool and there's very few of them that were even close to coming here or we have even looked at.
“Unfortunately for the supporters they've got to read it and put up with it. But the message is there is a lot of work going on, on a number of deals and hopefully we can get those completed by the end of August.”
Brendan Rodgers hopes to rejuvenate Liverpool in his first season with the Merseyside club. For now Brendan Rodgers primary objective is to win a spot in the top four of English Premier League at the end of the season. Bringing in top class players will help his campaign for Champions League action.
